Last year my Burn the Witch Artist Statement
spoke of Love and Loss and Love and Loss again.
I didn't realize at the time that there was
to be so much more love and loss yet
to come. At that time this concept alone
would have been unfathomable.
My Year-Long Art project has been wildly
significant in processing through this
time primarily because my experiences could not be
explained using my anchor art of words. My art
could not be crafted into sentences and strung
together on the page. This year, instead, I
turned to images of myself through photo self
portraits which you will see here in assemblage
I have discovered that my physical self, this
self I have diligently photographed, is to be
celebrated not only for its skin and cells
and blood and bones, but it is the form
my soul inhabits - my body - just as my
art is another form my soul inhabits.
Portraits raw, unedited, sacred, profound,
goofy, unfiltered, witchy, grieving... me.
